Embrace Change with abas Upgrade Strategy
Historically, ERP upgrades have been expensive, challenging, and a high risk for companies. Typically when a company makes a major or minor customization to their ERP system the upgrade path becomes incredibly difficult and costly. It is commonplace for a team of highly compensated consultants and programmers to spend months and tens of thousands of dollars making previous customizations compatible with new software releases.
The ABAS approach is easier, less expensive, and risk-free. ABAS offers an annual upgrade every fall. A typical upgrade can be performed over an evening or weekend. All customizations remain intact after the upgrade. Currently, customers are taking advantage of our latest functionality and technology while maintaining customizations made 10+ years ago.

According to Analysts, companies tend to underestimate the effort and risk associated with an ERP upgrade. The longer a company uses and customizes their systems, the more they underestimate the risk. The risk of a project failure is severe and could endanger the entire company. For example, companies are unable to load their goods onto waiting trucks and the loss of customer satisfaction because of unreliable order execution can cost far more than the execution of the upgrade project.
On the other hand, delaying an ERP upgrade poses its own set of risks, since no features and functions are added, new regulations are ignored, and the company runs on outdated technology.
Risk can take many forms, including system stability, new technology to support the new software, end-user or organizational changes, system downtime during cutover or IT and user resource commitments.
Upgrade projects are also usually led by an inexperienced or part time project manager, which increased the risk factor.
